    Hi Erel

    1. Just for curiosity I have installed .NET framework 3.0 and 3.5 (beta) on the desktop, searched the version numbers in the registry and added them to a config file. The app recognizes nothing but .NET 2. Either the version numbers I picked are wrong or B4PPC does not address .NET versions above 2.x?

    2. Is there any means (except crawling in the registry) to retrieve the time zone?

    No hurry :)

    1. Did you uninstall .Net Framework 2.0, otherwise it may use it instead of 3.0.
    It is recommended to install .Net Framework 1.0 or 2.0 when working with Basic4ppc, it hasn't yet been tested under 3.5.
    2. Maybe this link can help you: http://www.jsifaq.com/SF/Tips/Tip.aspx?id=0398

    Hi Erel
    Thanks a lot, indeed, for your prompt help. No, I haven't uninstalled .NET 2x.
    Any plan to incorporate a GetTimeZone command in the hardware DLL?
    Cheers

    I was under the impression that the main .NET Assemblies are unchanged for .NET 3.0 and merely have the additional Assemblies for WPF, WCF, WWF and WCS. So .NET 3.0 is actually still based on the .NET 2.0 Common Runtime and so I would not expect the Base Class, CLR and Windows Forms Assembly versions to change - but that is a supposition on my part.

    For .NET 3.5 I believe that it is still based on the .NET 2.0 CLR but that some fixes are made to the .NET 2.0 Assemblies which presumably will alter the Assembly version numbers.
